Lekic, 29, joins the Revs roster with a 10-year professional career, mainly in Denmark. The Danish forward is best known for the time with his most recent club, Silkeborg, with whom he made 121 appearances and scored 76 goals in two separate stints.

Lekic began his professional career with Danish second-division club Boldklubben af 1893, where he made just one first-team appearance in his first three seasons. He spent part of the 2001 season with BK Avarta, where he scored 16 goals in 15 appearances. Lekic then moved to Herfølge BK, scoring nine times in 13 games. Herfølge BK sent him to Wexford Youths in 2003, where he continued to score at a strong pace with six goals in 12 games.

In the fall of 2003, Lekic made his first move to Silkeborg on a free transfer, making an immediate impact with a 31-goal effort in 33 games, helping propel Silkeborg into the Danish Premier League and earning league player of the year honors.

His success at Silkeborg led to his transfer to Spain’s Xerex, where he spent two seasons before moving to Denmark’s Odense Boldklub (2006), Hungary’s Zalaegerszegi (2007) and Denmark’s Esbjerg fB (2007). In 2008, Esbjerg loaned Lekic back to Silkeborg, where he returned to his scoring glory with 15 goals in 15 games. Lekic re-signed with Silkeborg in 2009, where he spent the last three seasons, scoring 24 goals in 47 appearances.

Lekic has earned one cap with Denmark’s National Team, making a substitute appearance against Austria on March 3, 2010, in one of the team’s lead-up games to the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
